Running NFS and SMB in the Cloud: Five Points to Consider
Register now to learn more how Cloud Volumes Service for Google Cloud can help
you migrate your enterprise workloads to the cloud.
Shared access to file data such as configuration/binary files or even application
datasets natively in Google Cloud.
A global healthcare company’s immediate business initiative was to move their enterprise applications to Google Cloud. These applications required NFS & SMB interfaces and could not be re-architected.
Cloud Volumes Service gave the company’s application teams an easy way to provision NFS & SMB shares with the high performance and availability required. Additional capabilities, like snapshots and rapid copies allowed them to protect and gain value from their data sets.
Move, deploy and run Windows based applications easily, more securely and
more cost-effectively on Google Cloud.
A major manufacturing company was struggling with their cloud-first initiative, which involved migrating their custom built Windows based application to Google Cloud requiring shared SMB endpoints.
Cloud Volumes Service for Google Cloud was the only SMB capable file service that could give them a simple path to build out a hybrid infrastructure that could deliver a high-performance file share to support their Windows-based application with low latency.
A world-renowned lifestyle, clothing, and accessories retailer wanted to build a multicloud-ready environment that could scale horizontally across the entire organization and provide seasonal burst capabilities. However, their Atlassian applications couldn’t be refactored, and so they couldn’t move the unstructured files that belonged to them. The solutions they tried fell short of the performance and data protection capabilities they needed.
Cloud Volumes Service for Google Cloud was the only NFS and SMB capable file service that provided a holistic solution and met the requirements of workloads that called for high reliability in production. It also provided the necessary protection for their business-critical data through its backup, snapshot copy, and replication capabilities.
